Citation: At approximately 0543 hours, while performing a zero tolerance fecal test on the west line, I observed the 7th out of 10 birds to have fecal material, dark green and pasty, approximately 1/8" by 1/4" around the tail area. At this time I took regulatory control action, and stopped the west line. I notified , Evisceration Supervisor, and , First Processing Manager, of my findings. I observed the establishment implement corrective actions. This is a failure of the establishment's HACCP plan for CCP #1B as well as 9 CFR 381.65(e).
